Isn’t It Nice To Dream?
Kids dream of heroism and fearless acts of defense. They don masks and capes and practice fighting evil in bedrooms, basements and backyards all across the country. For a few, those dreams will become real when they join the ranks of first responders and military units. For others, these dreams are marked not by impressive uniforms but instead by shining intellect and inquiring imaginations.
For 700 students and parents this past weekend, those dreams involved computers and networking. Decypher was proud to volunteer our hands and talents at the fifth annual Youth Code Jam. Working alongside colleagues and leaders in our industry, Decypher helped students from 7 to 17 learn more about computers, coding and cyber security. Participants took part in cyber security challenges to earn digital badges and learn about topics like password strength, firewall rules, SQL injection and windows group policy.
